DARPA Conference Center
DARPA’s Information Innovation Office is hosting a Proposers Day to provide information to potential applicants on the structure and objectives of the Safe Documents (SafeDocs) program. The aim of SafeDocs is to restore trust in electronic documents and messages by mitigating one of the root causes of the Internet insecurity epidemic: exploitation of software's input-handling weaknesses via complex, maliciously crafted data inputs. The program will research methods to create technological assurance that an electronic document or message automatically checked and found well-formed is safe to open, as well as generate safer document formats that are subsets of the current untrustworthy ones, preserve existing information, and are also safe to open.

Hilton Washington Dulles Airport
DARPA’s Information Innovation Office is co-hosting the first annual seL4 Summit along with the Air Force Research Laboratory and General Dynamics C4 Systems. seL4 is an open-source, high-assurance, high-performance microkernel; its implementation is formally proven correct against its specification. The three-day seL4 Summit will focus on maturing seL4 kernel technology, stabilizing software distribution, expanding user adoption, and transitioning the technology into various applications. Attendees will also have the opportunity to receive hands-on training for the microkernel.

Executive Conference Center
DARPA’s Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is hosting a Proposers Day to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the Systematizing Confidence in Open Research and Evidence (SCORE) program. SCORE aims to develop and deploy automated tools to assign "confidence scores" to different social and behavioral science (SBS) research results and claims. Confidence scores are quantitative measures that should enable a DoD consumer of SBS research to understand the degree to which a particular claim or result is likely to be reproducible or replicable. The event will be available via a live webcast for those who would like to participate remotely.
